Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala

of the Empowered Feminine

A Retreat with Lama Tsultrim Allione

June 15-17, 2018

The Key West Botanical Garden-Nature Chapel

         Join us for this life-changing meditation retreat and celebration 
            of the Empowered Feminine. Come transform through the power 
     of the mandala, a universal template of inner and outer wholeness. 

Drawing on her experience as a Tibetan Buddhist nun, who became a best-selling 

author and world-renowned Buddhist teacher, Lama Tsultrim Allione offers a 

guide to access a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine: the fierce wise 

dakini, whose juicy potency is needed to meet the gale force winds of the current 

world situation. In the midst of the #MeToo and #TimeIsUp movement, we see the

 divine feminine rising, coming out of silence and into empowerment; but what 

inner practice can we draw upon to stay centered, not be depleted and transform 

encumbered reactions and habits into wisdom?

This retreat will explore the Mandala of the Five Wisdom Dakinis, which is a 

dynamic spiritual model based on a 1000-year-old tradition coming from Tibet, 

where the five obstructive emotional patterns are transformed into wisdom 

through color, sounds, visualization and an understanding of the five buddha 

families. This meditation practice gives you a practical method to center yourself 

and find strength within, while empowering you to be an effective agent of 

transformation in your world.  We will work with meditation, active imagination, 

sound and mandala drawing during the retreat.

Leave rejuvenated, having found a dynamic community of practitioners, a 

meditation practice, and the practical guidance you need to activate your wisdom 

being, as well as the ability to continue with online programs at
